Indian Jewellery - Dance of the Peacock celebrates the human impulse to adorn. Spanning a legacy of 5,000 years, the jewelry of India is an eloquent expression of the country's aesthetic and cultural history.This sumptuously illustrated book is divided into ten chapters, which weave factual information with the many fascinating tales recorded in early travelogues and historical chronicles. The jewelry of India represents one of the greatest traditions of human craftsmanship in the world. It has traditionally been worn by women as adornment, indicating marital status and wealth, and by men as a proclamation of power and as a symbol of rank and religious loyalty. Over 500 color photographs illustrate this beautiful book.
